How much of yourself are you willing to sell?

Brian DeLeeuw hits that sweet spot between literary and commercial suspense with his brilliantly adept, ingeniously plotted novel—a chilling, fast-paced drama that urges readers to question the meaning of atonement and whether revenge might sometimes be the only way we can liberate ourselves from our past.

Twenty-five-year-old med school dropout Simon Worth is an organ broker, buying kidneys and livers from cash-strapped donors and selling them to recipients whose time on the waitlist is running out. When a seemingly straightforward liver transplant has an unexpectedly dangerous outcome, Simon finds himself on the run. In order to survive, he must put aside his better moral judgment and place his trust in a stranger who has a shocking secret.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Powerful.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “While this is a fast-paced, engaging thriller, it is also much, much more. It is, at its heart, a fully and tenderly rendered exploration of loss and shame and the deep yearning for some manner of redemption. It is about the difficult choices put before us.”

    Thomas O’Malley, author of This Magnificent Desolation

  • “A whip-smart modern noir. Brian DeLeeuw’s writing is as keenly intelligent as it is eerily propulsive.”

    Jennifer duBois, acclaimed author of Cartwheel

  • “Intense, spare, and unflinching, DeLeeuw’s The Dismantling treads risky, ethically nuanced territory, exploring the nature of absolution and revenge, the lies we tell our families, and the honesty we can find with strangers. A psychologically insightful, gripping novel.”

    Michaela Carter, author of Further Out Than You Thought

  • “With its high tension plot and atmosphere of unease, The Dismantling is a morally ambiguous thriller in the grand tradition of Graham Greene and Patricia Highsmith.”

    Christopher Beha, author of Arts & Entertainments

  • “A smart novel…moves at a brisk pace, and DeLeeuw provides back stories for his characters that make them complex and convincing.”
